Oven Dried Tomatoes | Simple To Make

We eat a lot of tomatoes, not just for their taste, but for health benefits as well. These oven dried tomatoes are simple to make and all you need is salt and pepper to season them.

As much as I do not like being sick, I also do not like tablets. I usually self medicate. Sometimes this is successful and other times not. I take all sorts of naturopathic concoctions and hope for the best. I was not well a month ago, and managed to chase away the lurgies with my echinacea, vitamin C and the likes. Two trips back to gym and I got sick again. As we had a trip to George planned and then I travelled away from home, I could not stay sick. I know when I am about to get a sore throat, I crave tomatoes. It is the natural vitamin C that my body craves. Inspired by Chica Andaluza, I made these oven dried tomatoes to help keep the sore throat at bay. So far, that has worked. Now I just need to figure out how to turn the tap of the post nasal drip off!

  1. So sorry to hear about your sore throat – you´ve been a bit unweel recently haven´t you? Not good. And thanks for the shout out – it´s good to hear abiout someone oven drying successfully. Hope you are soon on the mend. How about a hot lemon, honey and whisky?!

    1. I think the whisky is going to be my next stop! I have tried everything and am now on cortisone nasal spray! My pleasure for the shout out 🙂

  2. I am with chica on the honey, Anyone who gets a cold here has to drink gallons of honey water drinks. just honey and water, hot or cold, all day.. it is wonderful. (and a little whisky would not go amiss i am sure!) Poor you. I had not seen the oven dried tomatoes and i still have some in the garden.. I will try it. c

    1. Hi C – honey is my answer to everything. I sell the most amazing locally sourced honey and I have a friend who has hives, so it is never not in my house 🙂

  3. What a great idea…sometimes I get greedy and buy too many tomatoes…so this is a great way to prepared them and have it handy.
    Hope you are having a great week Tandy 🙂

  4. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. It sounds like you are doing everything to get better. Made sure to get enough rest…and the whisky doesn’t sound bad. Add lemon and honey to it and you will have a nice bit of medicine. Take care.

  5. Hope you are feeling better, but you are obviously well enough to make these great oven-dried tomatoes! I just started oven-roasting tomatoes so I guess this is the next step! Thanks!
